Yep, one out of six people in the U.S. lives in CA. You're going to read a lot of stories about weirdos, liberals, normal people, brave people, heroes and conservatives -- all from California. If you choose to make a note of just the weirdos, you will have the impression that everyone here is a nut job. It doesn't serve any purpose but to make you sound ignorant. If that's what you want though, go for it.
I'll get to work on my stupid farmer from Nebraska list.
